Shortly after FX bought his new show, Bill Burr stomped his way to Netflix headquarters and said something along the lines of "you motherfuckers are giving me my own cartoon." At least that's how I'll be telling the story from now on.
Deadline reports that Burr has another new show but this time it's for the red and white streaming service. The show is called F is for Family and will star Burr as Frank Murphy - the family's leader, Laura Dern - Franks' wife Sue and Justin Long - the families' oldest son Kevin. It's based on the comedy of Burr so expect a lot of "fucks," "shits" and "fucking shits."
F is for Family's plot is simple as it "follows the Murphy family in the 1970s — a time when you could smack your kid, smoke inside and bring a gun to the airport."
The Simpsons' Michael Price will serve as the showrunner and is produced by Vince Vaughn's Wild West Television.
Burr was quoted saying: “F Is For Family is the show I’ve always wanted to do,” Burr said. “It captures all the characters of my childhood the way I remember it to be. Fortunately Mike Price and everyone at Wild West seem to know the same people I knew growing up. It’s going to be a lot of fun to tell these stories.”
F Is For Family is set to show up sometime in 2015. Although, this isn't the only thing that Burr is doing for Netflix. He also has a stand up special coming out on December 5 called Sorry You Feel That Way.
As busy as Burr gets, hopefully he'll be able to reprise his role on Better Call Saul as that no goodnick Kirby.
